When you go out with your LO, how much formula do you take with you?
Its times when I go out that I really wish I could use RTF. I usually end up cutting it close and having just the right amount. So, for that last errand or two I'm on pins and needles hoping we make it home before she runs out.
I have two formula dispensers (we use powder) that I fill up and bring 2 bottles of water, along with 3-4 empty bottles. Sounds crazy BUT we do live an hour away from the nearest town, and while I never use them all, when we are out running errands so far away from home I need to be a little overly prepared.
It really depends on how long I will be gone. I have little tupperware containers that I put enough powder in to make 4oz of formula. I fill three (sometimes four) of them and get two bottles of water.
i just take the can of formula (powder) it fits in the diaper bag or if i need to carry the diaper bag i just leave it in the car. i take about 2-3 bottles and put about 2-4 oz of water in each. i have a car bottle warmer and usually have i bottle of warm water. so fat i'v found out that its better to just take the can of formula
The mini Tupperware container was working out for me at first. But the other day while we were out it spilled open! There was powder everywhere and I had a hungry baby! I was scared to death! Thankfully, she took her paci and drifted back off to sleep until we got home shortly after. So, it looks like I'll have to resort to carrying the whole can with me from now on...at least until I find a better way.
I have a formula dispenser with the separater so I can measure out a few bottles into it, then I just bring a few bottles with me..usually way more than Ill use..but I like to be prepared! I also carry a bottle of water..but she likes her bottle warm so its hard to do it that way!
I have the formula separator that holds enough for 3 bottles, so I usually bring that measured for the 3 bottles, and then 3 bottles filled with water. He usually takes warm bottles at home, I have a car warmer also, so it works out in the end
